Del Mar Foundation to celebrate completion of Library Mosaic Wall with Dedication Ceremony

On May 4, the Del Mar Foundation will unveil a plaque honoring those who made the Del Mar Library Mosaic Wall renovation possible. Pat Welsh, initiator of the project, and artist Betsy Schulz will speak about the project and its significance to the community. The community is invited to the event, which will begin with the unveiling of the donor plaque at 3 p.m., followed by a reception.

Volunteers and donors will be honored at the ceremony, to be held at the library, for their crucial role in making the renovation a success. The Del Mar Foundation provided fiscal sponsorship and oversight, and committed $17,500 to the project with many generous donors stepping up to cover the full renovation costs. Kevin Hennessy, a Del Mar resident and owner of Island Construction, oversaw the construction work, donating both time and material to keep the project on budget.

The Del Mar Foundation sponsors programs, makes grants, and manages over $2 million in endowment funds to benefit the greater Del Mar community. The Foundation’s community endowment provides long-term funding stability for community needs. For more information about the Del Mar Foundation visit www.delmarfoundation.org.
